Someone Trolled A GOP Senator By Signing Him Up To Nickelback Emails

Someone Trolled A GOP Senator By Signing Him Up To Nickelback Emails

Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) is not diggin’ this at all.

On Friday, he tweeted that someone had signed several of his email accounts up to Nickelback promotional newsletters. “It’s. Not. Funny,” he wrote:

Whilst signing people up to spam email is never to be condoned, Sasse does have major form in trolling the Canadian rock band himself.

Over the past 16 months, he’s repeatedly used Twitter to poke fun at the group:

It’s also not the first time someone has added Sasse to the band’s mailing list:

Sasse claimed the office of Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) was behind the latest prank:

Hatch’s office hasn’t confirmed its role in the joke, but did use the opportunity to indulge in some more trolling:

Sasse saw the funny side, as did many of his Twitter followers:

To whoever just subscribed my email accts (family, work, obsolete) to multiple @Nickelback promotional & fan newsletters:

It’s. Not. Funny.

I think I’ve been clear:
If you don’t buy my book, I’m gonna start tweeting Nickelback lyrics.

Actually it’s hilarious.

Politifact rates this statement false. It is actually very funny.

Some, however, used the exchange to quiz both Sasse and Hatch over the GOP’s health care reform:

Ben, “this is how we remind you” to let us know what’s in the bill. Get it. Like the hit Nickelback song

— Patrick Monahan (@pattymo) June 16, 2017

So if you won’t listen to Nickelback, will you listen to experts in hearings on healthcare before voting on AHCA?

— Vote4Heyl (@tonyheyl) June 16, 2017

Ha. Hilarious stuff. Now where’s the health care bill you’re hiding from the tens of millions it will literally condemn to bankruptcy/death?

— Dennis Perkins (@DennisPerkins5) June 16, 2017

How about you unsubscribe from a few mailing lists instead of unsubscribing millions of Americans from health insurance?
